The Port of Los Angeles said Tuesday that while rail cargo has slowed nationwide, operations there are currently much better than earlier this year.
The port's media relations director, Phillip Sanfield, said that the number of ships waiting to berth at LA and Long Beach ports has been reduced by 75% since January, down to 22 vessels from 109.
"So no, we don’t expect a backlog of ships in coming weeks and months anywhere near compared to last year. We’ve made significant progress on that front," he told FOX Business in an emailed statement.
Sanfield said that operations at the port are fluid, cargo is moving at a record clip and the port does not anticipate issues as it enters the peak season.
